Drank this beer on nitro-tap at BJ's Restaurant & Brewery in Temple, Texas on New Year's Eve. Very good pour and quickly served to me by the waiter (did not sit too long).

Appearance - Very nice 1-2 finger head that did not subside. Opaque; dark brown porter; head remained in place throughout my time drinking the beer. Very nice looking porter...

Smell - Maple; molasses; sweet, syrupy smell; not overpowering. Very easy to detect the smell. Very excited to take my first sip after taking in this beer's pleasant smell.

Taste - Very enjoyable; can taste molasses, chocolate, roasted, sweet but smooth.

Mouthfeel - Dry, slightly hoppy aftertaste, roasted, dry finish. Comfortable on the palate, though.

Overall - I enjoyed this porter and I recommend it. Very nice, thick head; the taste of molasses and chocolate was delicious; a great roast; a very nice, dry finish. This is one to drink again...

Serving type: nitro-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

On nitro tap in Westwood (Los Angeles, CA).

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a 1/2 inch dense bone colored head that lasts. A foamy curtain of lace grows on the drink down. Smell is of roasted malt, slight coffee, and a subtle sour note. Taste is of roasted malt with a slight coffee aftertaste. There is an off sour flavor that comes out with each sip along with a mild roasty bitterness. This beer has a thick and creamy mouthfeel from the nitrogen. Overall, this is not a very good beer with the sour note in the smell and taste.

Serving type: nitro-tap
